Video and several others trash it. Will have to use video resources for a better idea. It didn't like sophos either. Hmmm.
Thanks

Glenn, are you behind a hardware (router) firewall? If you are, you have much better protection.

Howdy CarlTR6,
Yes I am. Pretty much standard config with MAC blocking though. BTW loved those cars. Thanks for the concern.

If you have your ports fully stealthed so that your computer does not respond to pings, you are virtually invisible on the net to passers by (read hackers). Hardware firewalls are much harder to breakthrough and go around than software firewalls. With your hardware firewall, you really don't need a software firewall. All you need is a fulltime antivirus, an on demand malware scanner and your hardware firewall. If you feel the need for double insurance, use Windows Firewall in addition. This combination protects you, uses less system resources, and bog your system down. Many security suites are as bad on your system as malware. As an additional security measure, run in a standard user account rather than an administrator account. This and common sense regarding clicking on links from unknown sources and avoiding doggy sites (good surfing habits) will protect you well.
